Through the study of LOTE, students come to understand different cultures and ways of thinking. Weekly Italian lessons are taught from Prep to Year 6.
Through stories, songs, poems and games students learn to count, greet, name colours, days of the week,etc. Students are encouraged to use the Italian language by repeating short, simple texts to describe and ask questions. In the senior years students are engaged in opportunities to translate simple texts both written and orally.
Through studies of the Italian culture, the students learn to appreciate the Italian influence on the Australian way of life.
